Switchboxes are often an understated accessory to any actuated system. Not only do they provide a feedback to a control room as to the position of the actuator and valve, but they can also provide visual feedback to engineers who are on site.
The range of switchboxes that we offer are designed and manufactured by Topworx in South Africa (formally Twistset). With a wide range of variations and designs available, we are confident that we will be able to supply you with a switchbox ideally suited to your process and environment.
